Shore good (sorry)
A few final thoughts about eating in Berlin. If you're spending some time in Ocean City this summer, take a side trip to Berlin and remember these:
I wish I had discovered the Atlantic Hotel's Solstice Grill before lunch. Maybe the food wouldn't have been any better, but I loved the looks of the dining room.
Second, the Tea by the Sea Tearoom was fabulous. I stopped by just before it closed and had a pot of Asam tea. ...
It was brewed with loose tea, something a lot of tearooms in the Baltimore area don't do. There were no scones left because reservations are a must -- the kitchen only bakes enough for that day's customers. On my next trip to Berlin, I'm calling ahead.
Finally, I loved the looks of the Pink Box Bakery and Cafe. The little pink building it's in is as ornate as the frosting on a birthday cake. The pastries looked pretty good, too.
